So Pho Vietnamese Cafe...

The school holidays have started and I decided to take a half - day leave to accompany my family to shop at the west side of Singapore. The Jurong area was really bustling recently with the opening of three new shopping centres in recent years - J-Cube, Westgate and JEM. Somehow, I prefered Jem more as it's bigger and have lots of varieties. 

It's been a while since we had vietnamese food and moreover, it's not easy to find in JB. So, we decided to dine at So Pho, one of the eateries in JEM, after walking around the three shopping outlet.

Vegetable roll .. one of the the popular Vietnamese delicacy

Fried rolls, which came together as a set of mixed roll which I ordered. My kid loves it. The six rolls cost around S$10.80.

I had a Beef Soup with beef slices and balls. The soup was nice , not too salty and filled with beef aroma. Cost S$8.80.

Hotspot seafood set - This is for two persons where my wifey shared with her sister. There's a lot of ingredients in the pot  - prawns, fish, mushrooms, mussels and etc. It's actually tom yum if I am not wrong as it taste like one. This cost S$14.80.

Fried Rice Seafood ... Seems a lot of folks having this. Cost S$8.90

And, not forgetting my favourite Salty Plum Soda a well as a Ice Lemon for my wifey.  Cost S$4.50 for the Salty Plum Soda.
Overall, the food over there was not bad and I think it's affordable. Altogether its S$56 for 5 person. 

Have good weekend!

  1. Oooooo...I love Vietnamese rolls. Still have some of the skin in the fridge. My girl doesn't like it though - she's not a fan of the skin...and would rather have popiah. That's why I made some just the other day.

    1. STP - I guess she don't like the ingredients in the rolls but prefer popiah type of stuffs. It's very much like popiah anywhere with all the vegetables and some crunchy stuffs.

  6. Salty plum...looks very interesting, and somehow it is presented in a similar way as margarita, eh?
    It is not easy to find Vietnamese food...most of them are cafes with only very limited choices on their menu, and I am looking for those with a wider array of choices from the authentic Vietnamese cuisine :-P
    This looks like a good and humble place for a simple fix, and with reasonable prices too!~
